    Their credability goes out the window when they give Cars adventure game of the year. Furthermore, Zelda should have taken that spot as it is more of an adventure game than RPG.

    Cars? Adventure? Smilie

    Great news for Nintendo though Smilie

    Lol, yeah, I would have thought Zelda would be classed as Adventure as opposed to RPG, but Cars? That's hilarious Smilie

    Though these awards are just... bleh, it is good to see that Nintendo have been enjoying a huge success in Australia.
